According to Nielsen, before the end of 2011 there will be more ‘smart’ phones in the U.S. market than ‘feature’ phones. These projections in smartphone growth are impressive and also support a vast market for previous model and used smartphones. What else are you going to do with yesterday’s model, right?
Much of the market is driven by the late model iPhone (3g and 3gs) but other phones are also starting to see signs of growth. Regardless of which phone you own, if you decide to sell it you should consider timing, condition and accessibility if you want to sell your older device at the highest price.
